Hi all, I am interested to know from all of you what sort of discount you get being a university student in various places. I understand in several places (the US and Australia) that the discount is 10% for any uni student. I ask because I am a PhD student trying to buy a powerbook and unfortunately we don't have an online education store here in NZ. One place that I have enquired with says that you can only get a 10% discount if you buy directly using a university account which I may be able to do but would definitely take some organising. The actual 'student' discount they offer is pretty crap in comparison (about $80 on a $4000 computer). Another apple tertiary rep has quoted about 10% off retail. I have tried to ask him if this is also only buying through a university account (which the other store told me was a NZ-wide policy) but he has been really slow with any communication. Is this store trying to pull a swifty or do education discounts get applied like this in other countries as well? I feel a bit annoyed because this computer will be used almost entirely for research work and writing up but just because I am paying for it myself I may not be able to get a reasonable discount.
